Watching Television With Your Mother
Watching Television With Your Mother

My mother is visiting. She came up from Florida for Easter and before she goes backĀ it’ll be a 10-day visit. I’ve managed to keep her moderately entertained and occupied, but eventually, before the day has come to an end, we usually close things out with some television time, and on these special visits, mom rules the remote.

So, the question is this: what’s worse? Watching television with your mom or quietly getting “caught up” in whatever your mom is watching?

I know there’s a Hallmark channel. I didn’t know there was a Hallmark movie channel. I do now. How else could I have gotten caught up in the movie “Freshman Father,” based on a true story about a college freshman who finds himself raising his son all on his own. After he flunked the calculus final which was half of his grade, I had to see how he’d bounce back, right?!

And if weren’t for mom, I could never have sat through “America’s Prince: The John Kennedy, Jr. Story.” Sad story. Awful movie. But there I sat with mom till 11p.m. last night, listening to her “sigh” from time to time and it was not over the performances.

Earlier in the visit it was “Dancing with the Stars,” repeats of “Castle” on TNT, and her favorite thing to watch when there’s nothing else to watch: “Law and Order reruns.” Yeah, I gotta go now. I could’ve sworn I saw a promo for a “Sarah: Plain and Tall” trilogy and a “Murder, She Wrote” marathon.
